Western Nile Virus Down


The Health Ministry reported, on Tuesday, that four cases of the Western Nile Virus have been reported this year. The ministry noted that June was the coldest it has been in 25 years which will move the height of the season to the period between the end of summer and the end of fall.

Monitoring of mosquitos showed two focal points of the virus: one in the Upper Galilee, the other in Kibbutz Eilot near Eilat.
